Seriously emotionally disturbed adolescents in
residential placement tend to act out aggressively. Such
behavior often creates an atmosphere of intimidation and fear
which contributes to the high stress, sense of incompetence,
and frequent turn over of youth care staff. Formal training
for these practitioners is limited in scope and availability.
The training program, Therapeutic Crisis Intervention (TCI)
(Budlong I 1983) which was the focus of this study, was
designed to train youth care workers to deal with aggressive
youth. It was anticipated that the program would increase
youth care workers perceived sense of competence and reduce
their perceived level of job stress.
